Industry Standard Book Proposal

All nonfiction is sold by book proposals. All literary agents, scouts, and traditional publishers require them. Most marketing departments, distributors, and wholesalers want pieces of the information in them.

Industry Standard Book Proposals, aka your book’s business plan, explains the Who, What, Why, Where, and How and highlights the Urgent, Unique, Useful, and Ultra-Specific. It includes:

  1. Cover Page
  2. Proposal Contents
  3. Overview (from the industry’s perspective)
  4. Market analysis (BISAC, etc.)
  5. Competition (recent bestselling / perennial)
  6. Author Bio (authority & credentials)
  7. Promotion (the author will: …)
  8. Book Details (cost-factors)
  9. Book Contents (annotated, chapter-by-chapter table of contents)
  10. Sample Chapters (first 2-3 as example of structure and writing)

Much of a Book Proposal’s information can be re-purposed for publicists, booking agents, marketing agents, advertisements, cooperative marketing ventures, and self-publishers who want to develop affiliations with independent supply-chain entities.
